“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

I Quote That - Acceptance

Don't Mess With Me!

Has anyone ever told you not to mess with them?  Well this little guy will let you know how he really feels.  He won't put up with your crap.

There is no other animal in the kingdom of all animals, as fearless as the crazyass Honey Badger. Nasty as hell, it eats practically whatever it wants.

Why Save PBS?

Republicans have never been fond of public broadcasting. Republicans have always thought that public broadcasting across the board is liberal, and not particularly supportive of Republican and conservative points of view.  Democrats tend not to think that, unless they're from very conservative districts.  

I grew up watching Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers and NOVA, hell I even watched Austin City Limits which was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President George W. Bush in 2003.  Here's a chart on why we should save PBS and tell me how you feel.

Maria Aragon Sings Born This Way on Ellen

The 10 yr old girl who became an internet sensation overnight, with over 10 million hits on YouTube, appeared on Ellen's show yesterday.

"It’s about just being yourself because God made you who you are and you’re no different than anybody else,” Maria Aragon said. “That’s a good message, isn’t it,” DeGeneres replied.

You can say what you wish about Gaga and her music, but this song has meaning and this little girl has proven it.  Children are the future, and if kids believe in the message that the song sends out, there will be a lot less discrimination and a lot less teen suicide in the world. Lady Gaga herself was brought to tears when she saw this video, tweeting:
“Can’t stop crying watching this. This is why I make music. She is the future.”
